PUSHING THROUGH

I reached an impasse in the story I’m working on. A dead end. An insurmountable wall.

Sat down and stared at the computer screen for what seemed like hours, wondering what to do. Writer’s block isn’t something I normally suffer from but this time it hit and it hit hard.

I finally decided that the only thing to do was simply to push through it, to write something no matter how awful, and that way to get past the difficult part to the next part that I knew would be easier to write.

So I did. Don’t know if it’s bad or good but at least it’s done. Later, I’ll go back and see if it needs to be deleted, polished or left alone. Okay, it won’t be left alone, it’s really bad.

But it’s done and I’m on the the rest of the story and that’s a small but important victory.
